Confirmation Retreat 2020 will be an afternoon event at Waltz Park Shelter in Mt. Horeb on Sat, 10/10, 1-5pm. We have postponed our weekend at Conference Point Center to Oct. 2021. We will be using the park to learn/play and learn about prayer…. How we communicate with our Father God!

Bible Breakfast 2020 for all 3rd graders will happen via Zoom on Sat, 10/3, 9:30-10:10. The 3rd graders all received a bag of materials (door dropped on their porch) and families are encouraged to make a special breakfast at home for this event. Watch your email for the Zoom link later this week.

Youth

Youth Bible Classes (6th -12th grade) will meet online on Sunday mornings. The Middle School Zoom will be 9:45-10:30am,(40 minute version). Peter and Becky will be leading the Middle School youth. Sara will support them this year.


This Sunday, 10/4, the High School Zoom will remain at 10:30 as the leaders have a conversation with those attending before 'dictating' a new time for their class.  So, they will negotiate towards 9:45 start time this Sunday, 10/4.  I will also be sending the parents of those high school students to help them understand how they can help us negotiate this with the students.Brian and Tonya along with Will will be leading the High School youth.

Ephesians 6 Ministry

Our Sunday School uses a "rotational model" for the younger children, enabling them to get to know a large number of adults in the congregation (and vice versa!). For more info about our Sunday School program, contact our Family Ministries Coordinator, Michele Amick (click here). 

 

Ephesians 6 Children’s classes will meet in person beginning Sun., 9/13, following the 9:15 worship service (from 9:45-10:30 ). We will also be posting lessons online through our website for families who are deciding to stay at home.

Families are encouraged to find a place/way to serve others, share God’s love with someone and be a blessing to others!
